ISTE's Games & Simulations Network Metagame Book Club http://bit.ly/metagamebookclubsitewill be reading READY PLAYER ONE from March 14 - April 8, 2017
We will also have 2 side tracks.

2) Connected Learning https://clalliance.org/why-connected-learning/ and the Metagame
We will be playing and reporting on the games from the book of course!
The book club will include a facilitated discussion of what school would look like if it was in a simulation. You can choose to just read the book without doing either of the tracks, but of course we hope you'll join us.
The site for the book club will be http://bit.ly/metagamebookclubsite
All Google Hangout will be livestreamed on Games MOOC YouTube https://www.youtube.com/gamesmooc.
This is an open book club for all educators. We also encourage you to invite your friends, students and kids to also participate. The model for the book club is based on social network knowledge construction. Participants will be able to be active in the book club in several ways from lurking (reading the discussions) to actively creating content. It is expected that each participant’s level of activity will vary each week based on the individual’s interest in the weekly topics. Besides the content area, there will be the opportunity for you as an educator to build your games and simulations PLN (Personal Learning Network).
